EERIE YET ENCHANTING..... Beautiful Shot
Could you sense the Grief ?
Viewed the slideshow. Great series
Seems like you're back on a CREATIVE roll
How will the photos look if you did a second series,,,,, B&W moody/Noir
The color set capturing the beauty of their life and the B&W afterlife
or am I getting too whacked
All the Best....Helen
An amazing collection of creativity from Nebraska.
I keep coming back to the one where the ground is all cracking...it is creepy but in a way that also keeps you looking.
As for doing some in B&W, I saw waaaay too many B&W cemetery shots when I was hanging out with Goths. I'm just not going to go there. Time to plough different ground, so to speak. Nothing wrong with it, but it's not the right direction for me at this time.
Not trying to push the blk & white concept but I think you misunderstood what I had in mind.
I TOTALLY AGREE RE; GOTH
Its soooo TIRED & OLD HAT
What I meant was a Blk & white series to complement your Beautiful color shots
BUT more Elegant, Stylised, & Executed as in CINEMETOGRAPHY
Two Films come to mind / Both CLASSICS and are in blk & white
THE INNOCENTS / 1961 with acclaimed cinematographer & BAFTA winner Freddie Francis starring Deborah Kerr
NIGHT OF THE HUNTER / 1955 Fritz Lang director starring Robert Mitchem & Shelley Winters
Both Films deal w/ Childern and a Sustained Tone of DREAD & ATMOSPHERE
which I think you brilliantly captured in your 'Child's Grave Cemetary Series'
but could possibly be heightened another step in blk & white
You can rent those at NETFLIX and you'll see what I mean helen
I find the image you have posted in this thread the most powerful of the series.
The composition has been thoughfully made and I get a sad, respectful feeling from viewing the image.
Moving stuff, well done.

For Somebody's Grandpa.
Chinese Camp, California
Thank you Maggie
Quite lovely the sienna & sand tones
and the combination offsets Maggie's blues so beautifully
Both soooo well done for such sad occasions
